Most recent Kiss Cam star runs with (not from) police

You're buss-ted!

Hamilton Police Chief Neil Ferdelman found himself collared Sunday by the Great American Ball Park's "Kiss Cam," and obligingly puckered up with the attractive woman sitting next to him.

"I've heard some remarks like, 'We're just glad that was his wife,' " said Sgt. Tom Kilgour. Noting the recent Kiss Cam incident that snared a Westwood man who was wanted for violating parole, Ferdelman declared: "I'm not on parole. I have no warrants out on me. And it was my day off."

So Ferdelman wasn't doing anything to get himself in trouble when he laid a lip-lock on his wife, Patty, during the Reds' game with the Houston Astros.

"But I embarrassed the heck out of my two teenage daughters," he said.

Leah, 14, and Tara, 18, were rather mortified, Ferdelman said.

"It was like, 'Oh, my God, Mom and Dad on the Kiss Cam!' "
